Spicy Carrot Salad

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 lb medium carrots (about 8 carrots)
2 teaspoons chopped parsley or cilantro, for garnish


Whisk together sugar, lemon juice, spices, salt, and oil in a large bowl until sugar is dissolved.

Using a veggie peeler, shave carrot slices and blanch in a pot of boiling salted water about 30 seconds, until crisp tender.  Drain well.  Immediately toss with dressing and chill, covered.

Before serving, sprinkle with chopped herbs.

    In your tapas list, the noun “camarones” is masculine. The adjective following it should also be masculine so you should use “bravos” instead of “bravas”.
